    I like it a lot! You'll be the envy of the campground. What are the dimensions of that beast?

    Thanks Tim , it was fun to make !
    11'' blade , 5.5'' handle , black locust up front, some copper spacers, couple ziricote spacers, honduran rose and some alaskan burl with a stippled stainless cap.....
    have a crossover sheath idea in my head, just need to get it to paper, maybe later tonight , just waiting for the Hawks to hoist the cup first !!

    Love it Rob! I may have to see if I have any old files or rasps laying around.

    Glad to see you did get one made from a rasp Rob. I really like how the guard and pommel are also made from files, it ties the package together well.

    thanks guys , here's the pics I actually wanted to post but wifey had camera , just a little better quality..........I like this knife the more I hold it, might just have to make another !!
    rasps are free and lots of leftover handle material makes for a cheap camp chopper build.............that said I see lots on line asking crazy price's !!

    had someone tell me it looks more of a fighter than a chopper (which is fine with me ) so I wanted to keep that in mind when putting a sheath together...........
    I was hoping the copper rivets would compliment the copper spacers...........the lighting wasn't great ( shadows) but I'm really happy with the end results.........

    Love the look of the sheath Rob!! The black decor gives it a cool kinda renaissance look to it as we'll ;)
